Living in Hammersmith area information and guide

Hammersmith area overview

Hammersmith is west London's buzzy, multicultural hub on the doorstep of the A4 - a main route out of London. Its increasing popularity is refelcted in the prices although it is still more affordable than living more centrally, whilst its four tube lines and fleets of buses, mean you can be on Oxford street in no time at all. The area offers elegant period architecture, great parks, riverside walks, decent nightlife and an excellent array of food shops, cafes and restaurants.
